Taylor Swift Album Leak


It seems one of Taylor Swift’s worst nightmares has come true. And it doesn’t have anything to do with her fear of sea urchin or being framed for murder. As Gossip Cop reported earlier Friday, the singer’s upcoming album 1989 seemed to have leaked online, days before its official release. Ironically, around the same time, Swift’s pre-taped appearance on “Alan Carr: Chatty Man” aired in the UK, in which the superstar openly spoke about being terrified her album would be pirated.


Carr was complaining that he hadn’t gotten to hear the record yet because Swift was afraid of it getting into the wrong hands, and she started to get flustered. “I don’t even wanna talk about it. I don’t trust technology,” the star told him. “I don’t want to talk about leaks. It freaks me out. I will have a meltdown on the show.”

Carr went on to humorously mock Swift being fearful of “stuff recording us all the time,” which at least got her to laugh. The performer’s comments, though, echoed what she said on Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” As Gossip Cop reported, Swift revealed to the host that she only allowed select people, even friends and family, to listen to 1989 on her phone through headphones because she was so concerned about the music getting out early.

And now, apparently, that’s exactly what happened. Reports are suggesting the leak can be traced back to France, since it appears in iTunes with French words instead of English. Swift’s camp hasn’t commented on the security breach, and it’s not clear if Apple had a glitch, or a third party is responsible. 1989 officially drops on Monday.

On “Chatty Man,” Carr also made Swift laugh by attempting to do the ribbon dance she does in the “Shake It Off” video. Amazingly, he’s even worse than she is. Check out the videos below!
